CANBERRA, Australia, April, 11, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- The team behind Australia's National Day of Prayer and Fasting www.nationaldayofprayer.com.au is calling the nations of the world to 48 hours of prayer and fasting for the USA. This period of prayer will take place from 30 April - 1 May 2014. April 30 is America's National Day of Repentance (NDOR) www.dayofrepentance.org while May 1st is the 63rd annual National Day of Prayer (NDP) www.nationaldayofprayer.org celebrated throughout the USA.
Ps Matt Prater said, "April 30 is the 225th anniversary of George Washington's inauguration as a devout Christian president and the 151st anniversary of Lincoln's day of 'humiliation, prayer and fasting' held during the devastating times of the Civil War. The theme for the USA National Day of Prayer on May 1st, 2014 'One Voice, United in Prayer,' is taken from Romans 15:6: 'So that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.' The 2014 theme is all about the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to place their faith in the unfailing character of their Creator, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and men."
Dr. Graham McLennan from Australia said, "We in Australia believe it is our turn to bless the nation of America through prayer and fasting according to 2 Chronicles 7:14. We join together to pray that God will raise up united prayer as one voice for the USA. We in Australia are grateful for the protection that America gave Australia and the nations of the free world during World War II. The Battle of the Coral Sea led by the USA was the turning point in the Second World War for Australia."
Warwick Marsh from Australia said, "Today we are calling the nations of the world to join in prayer and fasting with our brothers and sisters in Christ in the USA. Last year we had people from 28 nations join with us. This year we are believing for 100 nations to join us in prayer and fasting for the USA."
David Rowsome from Australia said, "The Motto 'In God We Trust' is the foundation for America's success. We thank God for America and pray for the healing of your land and the restoration of your foundations. We are asking God to answer our prayers for transformation in the USA and to inspire the nations of the world to join with us in prayer and fasting for America for 48 hours from April 30th to May 1st 2014."
